The Antifa movement today

Four years ago, I wrote an article about the original antifa movement, Antifaschistische Aktion, in Germany in 1932-33 (Karvala 2015). At the end I said: “In a future article we will look at how sectors of the current antifascist movement repeat many of the mistakes of the past, running the risk of repeating the same tragic end.” For many reasons, I never got round to writing the promised article. It would have been a huge challenge to try to summarize and evaluate the activities of the international antifascist movement over more than thirty years.

Mark Bray’s book, Antifa: The antifascist handbook, by explaining many of the movement’s activities and ideas, simplifies the job considerably. Thus this text is half a partial honoring of the promise made four years ago, and half a reflection on Bray’s book. I wrote it specifically for my book The antifascism of the 99% (El antifascismo del 99%, Barcelona: Ediciones de la Tempestad, 2019).
